Physician Compensation Valuation

Value beyond
the numbers.

In an environment subject to strict regulatory compliance and stiff financial penalties, it is imperative that physician compensation arrangements comply with fair market value (FMV) and commercial reasonableness requirements of the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statue, and all other regulations governing transactions in the healthcare industry.

Comprehensive Guidance

HMS Valuation Partners works with hospitals and healthcare systems to provide Physician FMV compensation opinions on all specialties and non-physician specialties. Having worked solely within the healthcare industry for over 20 years, we’ve completed thousands of physician FMV compensation opinions that have allowed healthcare entities to make value enhancing business decisions and stay compliant while mitigating risk. We have the experience and depth of knowledge to provide guidance in all forms of compensation arrangements, including merges & acquisitions, physician employment, ER call coverage, medical directorships, etc.

In-Depth Approach

We consider multiple approaches to value (Cost, Market, and Income Approaches) in each analysis and consider each of these within the context of the circumstances surrounding the transaction inclusive of the specific terms, stackable compensation items, production/financial performance, and any other unique factors involved. Our in-depth review of each of these approaches ensures our clients enter into economic transactions knowing the physician compensation terms meet the legal and regulatory scrutiny necessary to feel secure.
